AbstractThis fictionalized case is based on the controversy surrounding a South Korean research scientist's recruitment of egg donors for his team's stem cell research from 2002-2005. The research team later came under international scrutiny for alleged violation of ethical standards by paying and/pr coercing volunteer egg donors.
